Diva's Coffee Break Challenge

I really LOVE the sketch for this week's challenge. I desperatly want spring to come so that I can take my daughter outside more, and here we go again... It's supposed to snow tonight.. (my fault for living in new england)..
I flipped the sketch on it's side because I really wanted to use this awesome stamp set when I saw the sketch.
I pulled my favorite spring colors out for this project. Artichoke, Rose Red, Regal Rose, and Apricot. I stamped the main layer on shimmer white... oh so pretty.. To color the image, I used watercolor crayons and a water brush.
I'm really happy with this one, I may use it for my class tomorrow night. :) Hope you have some quiet time to stamp something today.
Rubbah Hugs,
Selene Kempton

So pretty. Stampers just seem to always be one step ahead of the calendar. . . bring on the next event so we can stamp! Love your Spring card.

I must have missed you on Wednesday Selene. This is so pretty- I really like how you did it and the colors. Funny that we both turned the sketch on it's side!
